Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!

[xiv]    Let us look at one other Delaware: $2.998.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Liechtenstein: $6.865 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,764,701,405,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  80. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has a new bill with which to deny U.S. recognition of the Taliban ‘government’ in Afghanistan.  His GOP colleagues have sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken demanding the U.S. State Department slap a designation of ‘foreign terror group’ atop the Taliban which they are.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban 2.0 is the same terror group it has always been.’
  81. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 174 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle down along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 81 since her singular visit anywhere in the vicinity of the border.  What a disaster.  
  82. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korean continues demonstrating that they’re ‘still with us’ by test-firing cruise missiles into waters near Japan and South Korea.  When President Donald J. Trump was in office, relations between the so-called ‘hermit kingdom’ and the United States were relatively cordial whereas now, the North Koreans are ramping up their activities.
  83. 2021 Wednesday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The U.S. Department of Defense and Health and the Department of Human Services is planning on buying 1.4 million doses of Regeneron.  In other (BOGUS) news we heard today, ‘immigrants (i.e., ILLEGAL) will reportedly have to show ‘proof of Chi-Vi vaccination before swarming across the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Sure, right- how is this going to work?  Next, as the Biden regime continues pushing the idea of Chi-Vi booster shots atop 2-3 immunizations for the Wuhan Virus, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that MORE info regarding the need for such ‘boosters’ must be handed over by the Biden regime’s leaders.
  84. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-And Authoritarianism News– As demands from the illegitimate regime in the White House grow for everyone to get vaccinated with the Chi-Vi vaccines, calls for ‘religious exemptions’ are on the increase.  We suspect that the Christian Scientist and Jehovah’s Witnesses’ churches are going to increase membership.
  85. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.77 (2) AstraZeneca $56.45 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.42 (4) BioNTech $355.25 (5) Moderna $434.46.  Follow the money, folks, follow the money.  All this talk of booster shots on top of the vaccines is crazy what with more and more reports about problems caused by the vaccines continue to proliferate.  IF you seek the truth, you must watch One America News and Newsmax.  The vaccines are causing far more problems than are reported in the mainstream media, which is not right, especially when European nations now are backing away from any discussion of booster shots.  The only reason the talk of booster shots is intensifying is because the Deep State and the Democrats are getting rich off them.  Look at that pig, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci- this guy is growing wealthy off the suffering of the American people.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.87 (2) General Dynamics: $198.48 (3) Boeing: $214.22 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.07 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $355.74.  This is how the Deep State and elected members of Congress grow rich, investing in companies in which they send billions of dollars.  This is not only illegal but highly immoral.
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.01 (3) Honeywell: $221.69 (4) 3M: $184.19 (5) Teijen: $1,646.00.  These stocks are going to take off like rockets as the Deep State and elected members of Congress- and their staffers- continue investing in these firms either through themselves or via straw persons such as, uh, well, like Hunter Biden.
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $110.81 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.88 (3) Maple Leaf Foods Inc./Tofurkey: $27.11.  Like it or not, this is the next push as the Green New Deal continues becoming a part of our lives whether we want it to be or we don’t.  All one need do is to watch the movie, “Soylent Green” starring Edward G. Robinson and Charlton Heston.  Popular culture has a way of becoming reality if one lives long enough.
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- ever a man of science- says that ‘human activity is the root cause of extreme weather.’  Next, Joe Biden has demanded that Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, come to the White House so he can apply pressure on them to vote for his bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’
  90. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new McLaughlin poll says that ‘Joe Biden’s approval numbers have cratered, the American people are concerned, and that NO one likes “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- my colleagues in California tell me that Kamala Harris is detested by almost everyone in the state and the only good thing about her serving in the regime is that it gets her out of their state.  Chef Itzi).
  91. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– It would appear the Biden regime is tossing Saudi Arabia to the wolves what with the withdrawal of its top anti-missile defense systems in the country.  What the hell is going on here?  In other regime-related news, one of the regime’s favorites and purported candidate for U.S. ambassador to Ukraine- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman- says if ‘what we hear about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, he must go.’  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Both of these men are absolute disgraces. [xvii].  Next, the U.S. Army says that soldiers refusing to get the ‘VID vaccinations may be forced out of the Army with less-than-honorable discharges.’  Yet, the U.S. Postal Service and elected members of Congress and their staffers do NOT have to undergo vaccination.  WTF!
  92. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– Something very strange occurred today when the Biden regime trotted out an enfeebled old Joe Biden to hold a Zoom conference with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson of England in which, the three leaders announced a new triumvirate of sorts with which to help the Aussies obtain nuclear-powered submarines.  Although the Chi-Coms were not mentioned, they acted as though this new alignment of the BIG THREE nations would counter Beijing’s ambitions in the region.  Most observers, however, believe the Brits and the Aussies came to senile Joe Biden’s aid so as to deflect all the negative press coverage it has been getting.  Even more embarrassing is that slobbering Joe could not even pull the name of the Australian leader out of his crumbling mind.  This was embarrassing and it also demonstrated that both Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison are in the tank for the Biden regime.  This is disgraceful and besides- we also believe the three countries are in the tank with the Chi-Coms, sort of a fait accompli.
  93. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Pope Francis- ever a creature of the left- says that ‘yes, abortion is murder but urges U.S. Roman Catholic bishops NOT to be political by denying so-called ‘Catholic politicians’ Holy Communion.  Folks, is the Pope on the Pro-Death money-go-round, too?  Like BIG PHARMA/vaccine manufacturers, Planned Parenthood and other infanticide-promoting organizations bestow BILLIONS of dollars upon left-wing and unscrupulous politicians and others.  It is akin to one selling their soul to Satan.
  94. 2021 Wednesday T: Moron News I– After little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez attended the $30,000 per plate Met Gala wearing a donated $35,000 designer dress with ‘tax the rich’ stenciled on the back of it, conservative groups are demanding an ethics investigation into perhaps the stupidest member of the U.S. House of Representatives which is indeed saying a lot.  We doubt any ethics investigation will go anywhere.  Look at Ilhan Omar, that woman married her brother to defraud U.S. immigration authorities and she is doing A-Okay.
  95. 2021 Wednesday U: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3595 what with a $17 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 07, 28, 45, and Mega 08.  Out of 108,351 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,854 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Dorose Liquor in Chatsworth, CA 91311 and (2) 7-Eleven in Vacaville, CA 95688. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #885 with a jackpot of $432 million up for grabs: 01, 04, 18, 46, 62, and Power 25.  Out of 93,905 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for $2,581,768.  The winning ticket was sold at the General Store in Compton, California 90222.
  96. 2021 Wednesday V: The Wrap-Up– As someone who lives in Hawaii, I do not have an opinion on the recall election in California.  However, my colleagues living there say that it may have been a good thing if the Republican National Committee had dumped millions of dollars in the state to wage 24/7 ads blasting what they say is the ‘worst governor in the nation.’  Instead, it became a personality battle between Larry Elder and Governor Gavin Newsom, a battle that could not be won no matter how likable Mr. Elder is and how bad Governor Newsom is.  This is the Democrat Party’s secret weapon- Republican ambivalence.  They look at California and say, “We can’t win there,” and thus they send no money to help turn the tide.  The Republicans say, ‘move forward, we will return next year.’  No, GOP, you won’t.  The numbers of illegals flooding the state and the corruption surrounding the election system there is going to prevent that from occurring just as it will help empower Democrats to win the remaining few House seats currently held by Republicans.  You had your chance, and you blew it, all because the GOP itself is corrupt and unwilling to fight fire with fire.  My colleagues said the proof of election fraud is in the pudding: in less than an hour after the polls closed, the results were in. Amazing how that happens, and Governor Newsom won by Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro numbers.  California is lost forever.
  97. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day- Friends, we wish that Rush Limbaugh were still with us because he did predict that the Dems would discover a way by which, they could make elections meaningless and boy was he right.  They have tried to topple our system of elections through corrupting them just as they have by flooding the country with loads of illegal aliens.  The tricky thing about the illegal aliens is that many of them still cling to Christianity, a religion the Democrats despise and detest.  They also want them to get abortions- plenty of them- something your average illegal does not seek because of love of children.  Add to that the fact that the leftists are blatant socialists and have mobs of storm-troopers in the street and one can understand WHY the illegals are drifting more and more to the right and are eagerly registering as Republicans even though- technically- if we abide by the law- they cannot.  However, if it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  I think it’s going to be  good election cycle.  The question is, can we maintain the wins or will we need to outlaw the Democratic Party?  I say, ‘OUTLAW THEM.’  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0953 a 7” x 5” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Lone Rose.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On October 08, 1978, Cheap Trick released their first live album, “Live at Budokan.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[ii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[vi] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xvii] IF the charges against Gen. Milley are true- and we pray they aren’t- his name will fall alongside those of Russian FBI spy Robert Hanssen and CIA traitor Aldrich Ames.  Names that every time they are heard cause patriotic Americans to spit.  This scumbag, Gen. Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

2005 Monday: In Xinjiang province in western China, a mine explosion kills at least 22 miners while another 35 were rescued. Sadly, another 30 or so are still missing. Most likely, these were Uighur slaves.

  6. 1786 Tuesday: Morocco agreed to stop attacking American ships in the Mediterranean Sea for a payment of $10,000.  Up until then, swarms of Arab ships pirated by fanatical Muslim lunatics would attack lone American vessels, rob them of cargo, and enslave the sailors.

  23. 1943 Sunday: During World War II, the U.S. 45th Division captures the airport at Comiso, Sicily; however, the German Hermann Goering Panzer Division launches a stiff counterattack.  Meanwhile, in the USSR, the Battle of Kursk enters its seventh day as the Axis throws everything it has against the Soviet defenses while the Soviets repeatedly counterattack.
  24. 1944 Tuesday: President Franklin Delano Roosevelt announces he will run for a fourth term.   Of course, many Americans are horrified at the idea, especially since they were appalled at his third run.  NO American president had ever run for more than two terms in the White House because President George Washington did NOT run for more than two terms.  Still, World War II was continuing, and many were fearful of ‘changing horses in the middle of the stream.’
  25. 1946 Thursday: In Malden, Massachusetts, future U.S. senator representing his home state, Ed Markey, Democrat, is born.  He would enter the U.S. Senate on July 16, 2013, and would prove to be one of the worst, far-left liberal lunatic senators in the once august body.  Worse, to keep a grip on his seat, he would side with nuts like Sandy Cortez, the dingbat from New York.  
  26. 1948 Sunday: During the War of Independence, the Arabs bombard Jerusalem from the air.  This would lead to the Israelis lighting up Cairo.

  29. 1954 Sunday: The first White Citizens Council organizes in Indianola, Mississippi.
  30. 1955 Monday: The U.S. Congress authorizes all United States money to bear the inscription, “In God We Trust.”  Meanwhile at Lowry, Colorado, military authorities dedicated the U.S. Air Force Academy.

  33. 1962 Wednesday: The first transatlantic TV transmission went through the Telstar I satellite.
  34. 1966 Monday: In Northern Ireland, future lead guitarist and vocalist, Ricky Warwick, with the Anglo-Irish American hard rock band, Thin Lizzy[i], is born.  He would perform with the group from 2010 to the present.
  35. 1969 Friday: The Rolling Stones[ii] release the single, “Honky-tonk Women.”  When fans heard it on the radio, they went insane over it, so great was the song with its lyrics about loose women, altered states of mind, and its clattering cowbell, sales soared almost immediately.  We hope everyone seeks this tune and the album on which it appeared, “The Rolling Stones Greatest Hits, Volume 2 Through the Past Darkly” out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music.
  36. 1972 Tuesday: The World Chess Championship opened as grandmasters Bobby Fischer of the United States and defending champion Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union began play in Reykjavik, Iceland.  After 21 games, Fischer won the championship.
  37. 1975 Friday: Chinese archaeologists discover a three-acre burial site with more than 6,000 clay statues of warriors dating as early as 221 B.C.  NO one knows who created them or left them there.  Some speculate space aliens had a hand in it.
  38. 1977 Monday: In a White House ceremony, President Jimmy Carter awarded the Medal of Freedom posthumously to Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
  39. 1979 Wednesday: The abandoned U.S. space station Skylab made a spectacular return to Earth, burning up in the atmosphere and showering debris over the Indian Ocean and Australia.
  40. 1985 Thursday: Nolan Ryan of the Houston Astros became the first major league pitcher to record 4,000 strikeouts in a career.  Ryan began the game with 3,993 strikeouts, seven shy of 4,000.  He struck out New York Mets player Danny Heep at the beginning of the 6th inning and then struck out the two subsequent batters to give himself 4,002 strikeouts.  You go, Nolan, you go. [iii]
  41. 1987 Saturday: Bo Jackson signed a contract to play football for the Los Angeles Raiders for five years while continuing to play baseball for the Kansas City Royals.

  44. 1995 Tuesday: The U.N.-designated “safe haven” of Srebrenica in Bosnia-Herzegovina fell to Bosnian Serb forces that then carried out the killings of 8,000 Muslim men and boys.  Elsewhere, full diplomatic relations resumed between the U.S. and Vietnam.

  46. 2005 Monday: In Xinjiang province in western China, a mine explosion kills at least 22 miners while another 35 were rescued.  Sadly, another 30 or so are still missing. Most likely, these lost miners were Uighur slaves, imprisoned unfairly by a harsh communist regime.  We believe the Chi-Coms to be Nationalist Socialists, i.e., Nazis, because they are seeking to conquer the world, to have a slave-based culture, and to exterminate those with whom they disagree: religious minorities, ethnicities, and other societal misfits, i.e., homosexuals, the disabled, and the mentally deficient.
  47. 2006 Tuesday: As Israel continues weathering criticism about how badly the Palestinians are supposedly treated says that there are not food shortages or medicine shortages even though the terminals supplying the Gaza Strip are under constant threat of attack nearly every day by terrorists.  The Hamas thugs want the people to suffer so they can then point to them, “See!  See!  The Israelis are mean to us, wah, wah, wah!”
  48. 2007 Wednesday: The Supreme Court of Libya upholds the death sentences of six Bulgarian nurses and one Palestinian doctor who had been tried and convicted of deliberately infecting more than 400 children with HIV-AIDS.  Who the f**k would do something as despicable as this?
  49. 2008 Friday: The Chi-Com authorities inform restaurant owners in Beijing NOT to serve any dog meat on its menus during the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics but donkey meat and other exotics like bats and scorpions are fine.  Enjoy.  (In 2020 when Xi Jinping let the bat flu loose upon the world, they had the nerve to point fingers at the Wuhan wet market when in fact, it came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology).
  50. 2009 Saturday: U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama addresses the parliament of the nation of Ghana today.
  51. 2010 Sunday: Colton Harris-Moore, the so-called “Barefoot Bandit,” is apprehended by the authorities in the Bahamas.   Elsewhere, in Kampala, Uganda, Al-Shabab carries out a terrorist bombing after pledging its loyalty to al-Qaida that kills at least 64 poor souls and messes up the lives of numerous others.

Dora, Florida, long-time member of the Grass Roots[iv]— Rob Grill (lead vocals/bass 1967-77 / 1980-2011)—dies from complications of a stroke; he was just 67 years old.  Elsewhere, the Knesset in Israel announces a law that will punish any Israeli citizen or organization that boycotts Jewish settlements in the West Bank.  Bravo for you!
  53. 2012 Wednesday:  Astronomers announce the discovery of the fifth moon of Pluto S/2012 P1.  Meanwhile, the GOP-controlled U.S. House of Representatives in another show of bravado but which is little more than an empty exercise votes for the 33rd time to repeal President Barack Hussein Obama’s signature achievement, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka the PPACA or Obamacare for short.  Wow.  Waste time doing nothing you losers.
  54. 2013 Thursday: The NASA New Horizons team release photos of Pluto’s largest moon, Chiron, showing that it is the size of Texas and covered in ice.  Elsewhere, exiled Iranians produce information for the global press that shows the IRG thugs have nuclear facilities buried beneath a mountain near the town of Damavand.  Time to drop some bunker-busting nukes on the site.
  55. 2014 Friday: LeBron James, former member of the Miami Heat, announces he will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the town he abandoned several years earlier, so he could win an NBA ring in Miami.  Elsewhere, after a dispute with Iraq’s Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki goes unresolved, Kurdish members of parliament bolt the government and return home where the Peshmerga takes control of two northern oil fields.
  56. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Greece continues negotiations with its creditors after refusing proposed austerity measures; however, the Greek government proposal includes reforms like those rejected by voters in a recent referendum.  Elsewhere, Boko Haram continues causing problems in the African nation of Chad, particularly in the nation’s capital city of N’Djamena.  A terrorist dressed in a burqa detonates a bomb that delivers at least 14 people kicking and screaming to hang with Allah far sooner than any of them planned while leaving loads more wishing they have gone, too.  What the hell is wrong with these savages?  Others of their ilk attack Maiduguri in Nigeria, killing at least one person and leaving others injured.
  57. 2016 Monday:  The governor of Nagaland, India, announces a ban on all dog meat sold as food.  Up until now, the people of this distant Indian state imported dogs as a delicacy.  From this point forward, it must stop.  Good for them.  Now, if ONLY the Chinese would follow suit and close their infamous wet markets where plague after plague after plague emanates.  Meanwhile, the U.S. says it’s going to send an additional 500 troops to clean up President Barack Hussein Obama’s mess in Iraq what with the ISIS garbage running amok.
  58. 2017 Tuesday: Emails released by Donald Trump Jr. revealed that he’d been told before meeting with a Russian attorney during the presidential campaign that the Russian government had information that could “incriminate” Hillary Clinton.  MSNBC “Morning Joe” (a pitiful show if ever one existed with two morons for the price of one hosting it) and former Republican (RINO) Rep. Joe Scarborough announced that he was leaving the Republican Party (good riddance), partly because of its loyalty to President Donald J. Trump.  Joe, you were never a Republican in the first place, merely a traitorous POS. 
  59. 2018 Wednesday: Always having to outdo everyone else, communist China claims to have discovered in the western part of the country where the Uighurs live the oldest stone tools outside Africa.  Estimated to be around 2.12 million years ago, made by early hominids.  Elsewhere, near the Afghan town of Kunduz, the Taliban carries out an attack on Afghan police killing at least 29 of them and wounding loads of others.
  60. 2019 Thursday: In Pueblo, Mexico, the final Volkswagen Beetles roll off the assembly line, a line of cars that began 80 years earlier.  Meanwhile, thanks to the economic mastery of President Donald J. Trump, the Stock Market hits new peaks what with the DOW Jones Industrial Average surpassing 27,000 points and the S&P 500 hitting 3,000 points.  Keep it up, Mr. President, keep it up.  Meanwhile, Tommy Robison, famed British conservative freedom fighter, receives a prison sentence of nine months in the slammer for contempt of court minus 10 weeks-time served.  His supporters protest in the streets.
  61. 2020 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 12,507,849 confirmed cases, UP 134,127, 560,460 confirmed deaths, UP 3,597, and 6,890,914 confirmed recoveries, UP 104,718.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 3,290,994 confirmed cases, UP 75,920 new cases, 136,621 confirmed deaths, UP 912, and 970,345 confirmed recoveries, UP 15,107.  Next, in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 304,297 confirmed cases, 6,851 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 1,130 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 840 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 39,218 confirmed cases, 1,424 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 187,538,384 confirmed cases, +350,136, 4,046,908 confirmed deaths, +5,921 and 171,449,408 confirmed recoveries, +341,307.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,731,593 confirmed cases, UP 8,046 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,845 confirmed deaths, UP 35,[v] and 29,242,181 confirmed recoveries, UP 8,469.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 304,485 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 154,710 deaths

  67. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.312 per gallon, $3.007 in Florida, $4.046 in Hawaii, and $3.830 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $3.045.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Mexico: $4.217 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,509,948,392,347 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Brazil, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland with $256 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day #110 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be holding this gig and her 16th day since her one and only visit to the El Paso Sector, perhaps among the quietest places on the border.  Anyhow, here are the stats as presented by One America News today as to the magnitude of both the extent of the illegal alien invasion and its cost for the American people.  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the infestation of illegal aliens: $702,955,520.  Next, (2) here is the cost this year of caring for the human refuse flowing across the border this year: $210,018,074,624.  Third, here are the numbers for illegals who have snuck their way across the border and into the United States this year alone: 2,152,517.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the massive numbers of illegals in the country as of this day: 36,152,516.  As everyone knows who has followed our website since its inception back in early 2009, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day estimated back then- 12 years ago- the number to be around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers to be closer to 75-100 million.  We must round up this garbage and bulldoze it back across the border into Mexico just as we must lay in minefields, razor wire along the banks of the Rio Grande and down its center just north of the dividing line between drug-infested Mexico and the United States.  We also must lay in razor wire across the deserts just as we must dig and maintain all manner of obstacles and trenches with which to stymie the invasion forces.  Some of us believe we should seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups or piranha fish.  We must seed the dry land with as many rattlesnakes and other poisonous reptiles so we can halt the tidal wave of illegals flooding our country.  If we don’t, the country will be lost and the Third World will be running the show.  Meanwhile, Arizona border officials apprehend more than 100 illegal aliens dumped along the border without any sorts of supplies to keep them from dying in the desert.
  69. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– At CPAC 2021 in Dallas, Texas, Donald Trump Jr. slams CNN for being a spewer of FAKE NEWS as well as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and crack-addicted and known pedophile, Hunter Biden.  Light ‘em up, we say.  Meanwhile, prior to coming to CPAC, himself, President Donald J. Trump received a huge warm welcome in Las Vegas, Nevada.   Upon his arrival in Dallas and taking the stage, the 45th president gave a barnburner of a speech in which he made it extremely clear: he is fighting on behalf of the American people.  God bless him.  Moving on, House Republicans are requesting an investigation into COVID-19 fraud.  Finally, Fort Pelosi is coming down as fencing surrounding the U.S. Capitol is being hauled away today.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Sunday H: Human-Caused Disasters– The cost to replace a collapsed bridge in Washington, D.C., will cost $25 million.  Is it not amazing how our own capital’s infrastructure is in dire straits?  Elsewhere, the death toll in the Surfside, Florida, condo collapse has now hit 90.  Speaking of Florida, the Miami-Dade County courthouse in the Miami has been shut down over structural integrity concerns.  Meanwhile, the Oregon Bootleg Fire doubles in size since Friday.
  71. 2021 Sunday I: Moron News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris is our subject for today’s Moron News.  Every time this tittering crow, this laughing jackal, this shrieking hyena, this gibbering phony opens her mouth, something surprising spills out like fecal matter does a starling’s ass.  Whining and crying about states cleaning up their voting laws and cleansing the rolls of dead voters, illegal alien voters, felons, and others unqualified to vote, she said that people living in rural communities will have challenging times sending in mail-in ballots because folks living in these areas lack…’photocopiers?’  What the hell is wrong with this nattering jaybird, this cackling toad, this prating POS?  Every time she opens her mouth, she provides the answer to anyone considering using the 25th Amendment to get Methuselah out of the White House as to WHY they can’t.  She is as stupid as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, known to some as AOC.
  72. 2021 Sunday J: Sports News I– In Game 3 of the 2021 NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks come roaring back and beat the Phoenix Suns 120-100.  The Suns lead the series 2 games to 1.
  73. 2022 Monday:  We hope today will be a slow news day.  Stick around and discover the news along with us…

153. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JUNE 02, 2022

1998 Tuesday: California voters passed Proposition 227 on this date. The act abolished the state’s 30-year-old bilingual education program by requiring that ALL children must undergo instruction in English. This is how it should be as every nation has an official language so the illegal alien-loving scumbags that want every child taught in their native language need to go to prison for subverting the nation—hear that Democrats?

  58. 2019 Sunday: In Game 2 of the 2018-19 NBA Finals in Toronto, Canada, the Golden State Warriors roared back to win the game against home team, Toronto Raptors, by a final score of 109-104.   Elsewhere, Canada temporarily closes its embassy in Venezuela after the government of thug dictator Nicolas Maduro fails to provide accreditation to Canadian diplomats.  The Venezuelans are peeved.  Screw them.
  59. 2020 Tuesday: Thanks to infusion of dark money from the Chinese Communist Party (or so the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes), unrest in American cities continues unabated.  Many cities- both large and small- continue to suffer violent riots and angry protests, supposedly over the murder of George Floyd but now, many are not so sure.   At the same time, the Chinese Wuhan Virus Bat Flu continues causing problems which is somewhat redundant as both the riots and the disease are Beijing’s response to Trump out-negotiating them on the U.S.-communist China Trade Deal.  Here are the COVID-19 stats for the planet today: 6,325,603 confirmed cases, 377,460 confirmed deaths, but 2,727,679 confirmed recoveries which is excellent, as far as recoveries go.
  60. 2020 Tuesday A: In the United States- the place hardest hit by the Bat Flu, here are the numbers for today:  1,866,279 confirmed cases, 107,506 confirmed deaths, but 416,319 confirmed recoveries.  Note: U.S. recoveries would be much, much higher if MOST Blue State governors would not conceal the numbers which would make the number of deaths appear far less.  Shame on them.  Moving on, in the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 115,310 confirmed cases, 4,286 confirmed deaths, but Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the numbers: 652 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 608 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, here are the numbers: 22,130 confirmed cases, 1,129 confirmed deaths, but that dingbat Governor Jay Inslee won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  
  61. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 172,360,613 confirmed cases, +403,338, 3,699,783  confirmed deaths, +9,000 and 155,072,367 confirmed recoveries, +65,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,149,029 confirmed cases, UP 11,789 from yesterday’s reporting, 610,912 confirmed deaths, UP 603,[vii] and 27,975,613 confirmed recoveries, UP 46,126.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]  
  62. 2021 Wednesday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 292,966 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 166,643 deaths  
  63. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,791,300 confirmed cases, 63,274 confirmed deaths, and 2,056,809 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,327,989 confirmed cases, 36,924 confirmed deaths, and 1,965,252 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,332 confirmed cases, 500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 439,337 confirmed cases, 5,843 confirmed deaths, and 213,533 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wisconsin, home of Governor Tony Evers, another POS like yesterday’s Ralph “KKK” Northam: they have 674,480 confirmed cases, 7,875 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[ix]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,517 confirmed cases, 6,415 confirmed deaths, and 832,764 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Cyprus, 102nd country on the list, a Greek civilization hampered by loads of Turks: 72,515 cases of the virus, 360 confirmed deaths and 69,738 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  65. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,600.38, UP 25.07 points (+0.073%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,756.33, UP 19.85 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,208.12, UP 6.08 points (+0.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.74 per barrel, -0.09 (-0.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,910.90 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $28.31 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.34%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,194.90 per troy oz, +2.20 +0.18%) while the price of COPPER is $4.60 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,850.80 per troy oz, -8.93 (-0.31%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $25,500.00 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Danish Krone, one greenback equals 6.09 and in Djiboutian Franc, a buck equals 177.50 and in Dominican Peso, one dollar equals 56.85 of theirs.[xiv]        
  66. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.204 per gallon, $2.861 in Florida, $3.939 in Hawaii, and $3.579 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. District of Columbia: $3.171.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Puerto Rico: $3.244 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,359,625,572,309 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #72 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the disaster on the southern border and yet, she has yet to show up there to do her job.  Speaking of this disaster, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is exacerbating the border crisis by canceling illegal alien protection protocols.’ 
  68. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Beijing orders the shutdown of the June 4th Museum that commemorates what the Chi-Coms did to pro-democracy protesters in Tiananmen Square back on June 4, 1989.  The Chi-Coms claim the museum lacked the proper business license and ordered their closure.  What a load of crap.   Next, we learn today that Iran could soon strike the United States with an EMT weapon which would obliterate not only the U.S. power grid but that of Canada and Mexico at the same time.  (Note- it’s about time we drop a big flipping nuke atop the Iranians.  NOW).  Elsewhere, in advance of the midnight deadline for the Israelis to form a new government, they managed to cobble one together that will signal the END of the Benjamin Netanyahu era.  (Note- expect Iran and their stooges in Hamas and Hezbollah begin lighting Israel up yet again).
  69. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– As Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s star continues to collapse, he has both a movie and a book coming out.  (Note- why is it losers such as “Phony Tony” and Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov[xviii] never see that they are so full of self-importance that it does them in when they take things too far?  Hubris, folks, hubris).  We hear 3,200 pages of Fauci’s emails show him in deep with the Chi-Coms, so the question rises ‘what did YOU know, Dr. Fauci, and when did YOU know it?’  POS.  (Speaking of Fauci, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says there is NO way ‘Phony Tony’ should be given a pass on COVID).  Next, West Virginia is giving away prizes of $1 million as well as hunting licenses and even firearms to get people to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization has approved the Chi-Coms’ Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine for immediate emergency deployment.  It will be going to the Third World.  Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘all evidence leads directly to the Wuhan Institute of Virology when it comes to determining WHO is responsible for trashing much of the world.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: Business News– the Federal Reserve says that even with ‘hiring troubles and rising prices, U.S. growth is ‘gaining speed.’  Uh, we’ll see.  Next, Papa John Schnatter says ‘America’s small businesses can survive COVID-19 but they sure as heck cannot survive tax hikes.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore told Newsmax TV that ‘more stimulus checks could damage the U.S. economy.’
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Pennsylvania Republicans are flocking to Arizona to observe the ongoing 2020 Election audit occurring in the Copper State. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday K: National Security News– Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that ‘Vladimir Putin is indeed testing feeble old Joe Biden what with all the ongoing hacks of infrastructure and now JBS- the largest meat-packing company in the world.’ 
  73. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– People are still responding in shock to the words that drooled out of Joe Biden’s mumbling mouth yesterday in which, he claimed that ‘white supremacism is the greatest danger facing our country- so says U.S. intel agencies, NOT the Chi-Coms, NOT the Russians, NOT Iran, NOT radicals like Muslim extremists, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter thugs.’  People are aghast at the constant finger-pointing.  Give us some examples you feeble old fool but beware- when you continue ginning up anger against something that no longer exists, what you claim to fear could quite easily return.   
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  Feeling their oats, the state prosecution in the case of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is seeking 30 years imprisonment for the now-convicted cop.  The defense, on the other hand, is seeking time served.  Period.  What we do know is that the feds are going to take a whack at this already beaten apple which strikes us as double jeopardy.  Still, they have to because the majority of the chef-authors at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day believe that due to the corruption of the original trial, Officer Chauvin will get a new trial and most likely will be acquitted.  Meanwhile, the Defund the Police Movement is losing momentum as crime is going up and cities are rushing funding back to law enforcement to stop this massive spike in violent crime.  Speaking of the crime wave, the Miami Police Department’s chief has said it’s ‘going to be a long sizzling summer what with all the shootings occurring around the country.’  Finally, an off-duty FBI agent by the name of Eduardo Valdivia has been charged with attempted murder after getting into an altercation with an unarmed individual aboard a Metro train in a Washington, D.C. suburb in Maryland last year on December 15, 2020.  The fight led to the agent trying to shoot the man.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, one of the BIG ARCHITECTS behind the aforementioned Defund the Police Movement is spending hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to maintain private security around her 24/7/365.  Wow.  Hypocrite.  Next, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said of President Donald J. Trump that he touched a nerve among the American people who felt left out of the system.  Amen.   Moving on- and this is extremely embarrassing- the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See is trying to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag.  WTF.  Is no place free from this tomfoolery?  Enough with the push of everything gay, we might be better off if the Chi-Coms took the country over.  Enough is enough.  Finally, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, communist, cannot take any more- she threw her hat into the right to rip the governorship of her state away from RINO sell-out Doug Ducey.  TWO LOSERS.
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Carol Walker a horse photographer and advocate reported to Tucker Carlson that the Biden regime is sending wild horses to slaughter.  This is NOT right and yet another example of overreach by a criminal regime.   Speaking of the criminal Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump lambasted the regime over its dismantling of the successful “remain in Mexico policy.’  Speaking of the 45th president, he closed his ‘From the Desk of the 45th President’ blog. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: Miscellaneous News I– The Trump Organization is putting up its Washington, D.C. hotel once again.  Next, WOKE threats pushed ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis to move to protect girls’ and women’s sports in the Sunshine State.  Speaking of governors, the one in Ohio- Mike DeWine, RINO, is under fire because he supports both the 1619 Project which is bulls**t and Critical Race Theory which is equally bulls**t.  Vote this POS out of office.  NOW.  Elsewhere, a new report says that sexual assault and racism seem to be the way of life at Virginia Military Institute.  Whoa.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys- “Holland”- came out on January 08, 1973 and was one of their best.  The band at this time had abandoned the West Coast for the Atlantic coast- in Holland- and produced some stunning material.  The lineup once again featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals).  Every tune on this album is excellent, opening with “Sail On Sailor” sung by Blondie Chapin, the absolutely love psychedelic tune, “Steamboat,” sung by Carl and Dennis.  The song has some of the best guitar work of Carl yet, a mind-altering but beautiful lead.  Next, is a three-part “California Saga” sung by Mike and Brian.  Side two opens with “The Trader,” another superb song sung by Carl to the bluesy “Leaving this Town” sung by Blondie and Ricky to Dennis’ tune, “Only With You,” sung by Carl.  The closing track, “Funky Pretty,” is sung by most of the Beach Boys and a stunning tune.  Most of these tunes would show up on the upcoming live album and would be gems.  Oh- on the vinyl version there was an extra disc with a Brian Wilson tale set to music- “Mount Vernon and Fairway.”  Fascinating.  Absolutely amazing from start almost to the finish which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and to make it a part of your daily listening rotation.   You will be glad you did.

  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,221 confirmed cases, 6,395 confirmed deaths, and 832,232 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Cuba, a communist hellhole that liberal Americans for some unexplainable reason seem to worship and love: 128,094 cases of the virus, 834 confirmed deaths and 120,282 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  67. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,896.04, DOWN 164.62 points (-0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,299.74, DOWN 3.90 points (-0.029%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,115.68, DOWN 12.15 points (-0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.38 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.20 per troy oz., -12.60 (-0.65%) while the price of SILVER is $27.79 per troy ounce, -0.23 (-0.84%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,194.50 per troy oz, -7.10 (-0.59%) while the price of COPPER is $4.59 per pound, -0.00 (-0.04%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,869.29 per troy oz, -33.59 (-1.16%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.70%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94.     In Venezuelan Bolivar, one greenback equals 248,487.64 (that’s socialism for you) and in Vietnamese Dong, a buck equals 23,045.00 and in West African CFA Franc, one dollar equals 532.50 of theirs.[xv]     
  68. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.144 per gallon, $2.887 in Florida, $3.886 in Hawaii, and $3.547 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.877.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Kyrgyzstan: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,305,687,729,011 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is the 58th day in which the appointed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has FAILED to visit the southern border.  What’s up with that?   Speaking of the border calamity, One America News reports today’s stats regarding JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- as of today, the cost of caring for illegal aliens is $519,152,882.  The number of illegals that have crossed into the United States this year alone sits at 1,555,337 invaders whom the Biden regime is dumping across the United States.  One America News reports the number of illegals in the United States is around 35,555,336 which is incredible, but we have long said that the numbers of illegal alien invaders is between 35-50 million which is not flipping good.  Round ‘em up and begin deporting them.  NOW.  Apparently, along with the more than a million who have flooded into the United States this year, the Biden regime is going to allow in an additional 260 ‘vulnerable illegal aliens,’ i.e., gays, trannys, and other victimized groups, into the U.S. every day where the taxpayers will pay their way.
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Colombian leaders confirm the death of prominent FARC leader Jesus Santrich- killed in Venezuela.  Venezuelan dictator (and former bus driver) Nicolas Maduro says he knows nothing about it.   In other overseas-related news, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi calls for a ‘diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.’  What is wrong, Mumbles?  Chi-Coms not dumping enough cash in your bank accounts. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– After Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrat election officials did their best to delete as much data related to the 2020 Elections, election auditors have announced they have recovered the deleted databases. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday I: Joe Biden News– A mushed-mouth Joe Biden spoke to U.S. Coast Guard grads and after telling them that ‘COVID-19 has prepared you to meet any challenge,’ he lit them up for not being overly enthusiastic about his incredibly low-key, incoherent speech and called them ‘dull,’ forcing them to applaud his stumbling, bumbling speech.  It was incredibly embarrassing to be sure.   Meanwhile, when a news reporter asked Joe Biden about “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ attack on him during the primary debates of last year over his record on busing, the slow-witted moron who resides in the White House said of her comments that her comments were ‘f**king bulls**t.”  (Note- increasing belligerence and anger is yet another sign of mental decline).
  73. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I- the regime announces it is going to release 3 terrorists languishing in Gitmo.  (Note- why not try the SOBs and then execute them?).  Next, the regime slanders the impressive, peace-bringing Abraham Accords, basically labeling them as fecal matter.  Wow.  Next, the regime is offering little support to Israel.  It would appear that she will have to fight on in solitude against Hamas and Hezbollah trash seeking to destroy her.  Moving on, Joe Biden’s court-packing commission is meeting soon with answers as to how the Democrats can continue trashing the federal court system.  (Note- a McLaughlin poll says that 64-percent of Americans believe Joe Biden won’t be running in 2024 and that President Donald J. Trump will decimate “Kooky Kamala” Harris should this quack somehow become the Democratic Party’s sacrificial 2024 lamb).
  74. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The BIG Joe Biden regime news of the day is that the regime is lifting all sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany.  This will bring cheap Russian natural gas to Europe.  What could be wrong with that?  Well, it provides the Putin regime loads of high-paying jobs while increasing his regime’s power and reach across all non-Russia Europe, something President Donald J. Trump fought against, and which Joe Biden has now overturned- and they claim the 45th president was a stooge of the Russians for four long years.  Wow.  What could be wrong with the Russians supplying the main source of energy to Europe?  Why have NATO?  Add to that Joe Biden shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline on Day 1 and the Colonial Pipeline suffering a Russian hacking attack.  Again, WTF?  Yet, all we hear are crickets…
  75. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– The GOP is expected to release their ‘counteroffer’ to Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar 2022 Budget soon.  We await it with bated breath.  Next, Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-FL 12th congressional district, ripped Health and Human Services Secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra a new one over the secretary’s stance on ‘partial birth abortion.’  Secretary Becerra sidestepped ‘partial birth abortion’ by mumbling about no actual law prohibiting the barbaric practice.  Ah, one must love the Pro-Death Movement.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO-GA, says he is running for re-election in 2022.  Loser.  Elsewhere, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom released his 2019 tax returns.  Big whoop.
  76. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, seeks to codify into law what President Donald J. Trump sought to do back in 2017 and that is to keep U.S. soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen-and-women, Coast Guard, and other military retirement funds out of communist China.  Back in 2017, the 45th president discovered that the five-member panel that manages military personnel retirement funds were going to invest the money in Chi-Com companies which means that money ALWAYS manages to find its way into Chi-Com military corporations.  That is insane, as insane as allowing the Chinese Communist Party to manufacture the pharmaceuticals the American people rely upon to protect their health.  We hope you succeed in this valiant effort, Senator Tuberville.
  77. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News III– The U.S. Department of Justice is creating a task force to combat Chi-Vi fraud in the United States and around the world wherever it may be connected to the U.S.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is encouraging lawmakers to vote against the proposed 01-06-2021 Capitol Hill Riots, aka the largest false flag operation in the history of American politics, ‘commission’ to investigate the events surrounding that day.  The Democrats do not want to investigate Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or any other domestic terrorist group, just the events of January 06, 2021, which means they want to investigate President Trump yet again, hoping against hope, they can somehow tar and feather him as some sort of Osama bin Laden.  Later in the day, the House voted to establish the commission with 35 Republicans[xix] joining the Democrats.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, hoped that Republicans would not vote ‘aye’ on this garbage and yet they did.  Sad, extremely sad.
  78. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News IV– A U.S. Army chaplain found himself reprimanded for being critical of the NEW U.S. Army’s ‘tranny policy.’  This occurred back on May 12 when Chaplain Major Andrew Calvert commented on his personal social media page where he expressed his religious views and mentioned his support for the ban on trannys serving in the U.S. military.  Once again, a conservative thinker is smacked down for sharing his or her personal views.  What a load of crap.   Next, despite what Pope Francis has ordered, U.S. bishops are going to begin debating Joe Biden receiving/not receiving communion over his Pro-Death policies.  We hope they excommunicate the old bastard.   He certainly is NO Catholic.  Elsewhere, ultra-left, Soros-funded hack Attorney General Leticia James says that investigation into President Donald J. Trump is now a ‘criminal matter.’[xx]  Soros’ ankle-biting dog strikes again.  Finally, attorney Mark McCloskey, R-MO, announced that he is running for U.S. Senate in Rush Limbaugh’s home state.
  79. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News V– In the city controlled by Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot, DS-Chicago, so far this year there have been 1,200 shootings.  Oh- she also will no longer permit white people to interview her.  Racist?  Of course, but Democrats claim it’s somehow not.  Go figure.  In the Keystone State, businessman Lou Barletta is running to replace the POS they have for governor now, the extremely corrupt Tom Wolf.  We hope he clobbers him.  Elsewhere, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, is pressing the Joe Biden regime over its use of encrypted communications so as to avoid any type of oversight.  This is akin to Hillary Rodham Clinton having a private server next door to her basement crapper.  Can you imagine what would be said if President Donald J. Trump was the one committing this highly questionable act?  Ye gods, don’t even want to think about it.
  80. 2021 Wednesday Q: Miscellaneous News I– A medical panel recommends colon cancer screenings beginning at age 45.  Next, Southern Command plans to double its emerging tech areas budget in 2022.  Next, Yosemite National Park is going to require reservations through September so as not to overcrowd America’s most popular national park.  Elsewhere, Lollapalooza Music Festival returns in Chicago on June 29.  Elsewhere, Lamborghini projects a fully electric car by 2030.
  81. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3561 with a $47 million jackpot on the line.  Next, we have the Powerball Draw #847 with a $201 million jackpot on the line for some lucky soul(s).   First, here are the results for the Super Lotto draw tonight- 04, 16, 18, 32, 44, and Mega 20.  Out of 125,265 winning tickets, the highest winners are THREE people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $15,174 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Christy’s Donut in Los Angeles, CA 90062; (2) Safeway Fuel in South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150 (they hit on May 08, 2021, too); and (3) Love’s Travel Stop in Westmorland, CA 92281.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 11, 13, 55, 56, 69, and Powerball 04.   Out of 83,446 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $14,910 apiece.
  82. 2022 Thursday: We are behind, yes, we know that…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys was filler of sorts what with it being an album of covers done with acoustic instruments and vocals.  “Beach Boys Party” came out on November 08, 1965 and was received well even though the times they were a-changing all-right.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Brian Wilson had by this time suffered his first mental breakdown due to the constant stress of being forced by his family members to write hit songs and commercial albums as well as nonstop touring and friction with his abusive father Murray.  He also was experimenting with the popular drugs of the time so he could raise the level of his songwriting which was to come.  Great album for an increasingly contentious time in the history of the world which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will be promoting the music of Curved Air but when we do, you will be among the first to know.

[iv] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[v] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Village People in the not-too-distant future.  Don’t want anyone calling us homophobic. 

[vii] Not sure when we will do the music of Freddie and the Dreamers but one day, we most certainly will so continue reading our political site until we do.

[viii] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

Trump are here as are others whom we do not know.  Some are curious as to WHY Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa would vote to establish this bogus commission after the Democrats tried to strip her of her victory.  WTF?

[xx] President Trump says this is yet another political witch hunt.

71. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 2022

1954 Friday: In French Indochina, the French Union troops stationed at Dien Bien Phu are aware that enemy activity surrounding their various outlying strongpoints is increasing. The People’s Army is digging approach trenches in the daylight so that when the attack begins tomorrow afternoon, the Viet Minh will be able to approach undercover of their trenches to just outside the barbed wire perimeters. French patrols are encountering more stiffening enemy resistance and a few captured prisoners tell them it’s coming tomorrow.

  70. 2020 Thursday: CPUSA candidate, oh wait, he is running as a Democrat, Sen. Bernie Sanders goes to the mics in Burlington, VT, and does his best to scare the hell out of the American people.  His solution to the Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, a gift from China to the rest of the world all because they took it where the sun don’t shine when they signed the U.S.-China trade deal, is for the American people to immediately embrace Marxism as run and defined by him.  Following upon the heels of the NBA canceling its season, the NHL does the same.  Major League Baseball has motioned that spring training could be on the rocks, too, if not the entire season.  What should be clear to ALL is that the LEFT never lets a good crisis go to waste and anything that will enable them to advance socialism and big government even further is in their wheelhouse.  So far, ONLY 39 Americans have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus, most of them in a Washington state nursing home.  If you have ever worked in such a facility, you would understand WHY this tragic statistic is so.  Of course- according to Bernie and his fellow Democrats, the Trump administration is STUPID and incapable of doing anything to thwart the Chinese-transmitted virus.  In the spirit of everything, we encourage the president to postpone the election until ALL is clear.
  71. 2021 Friday: Today is Day 52 of the Biden Regime.  Not good, folks, not good.  Stick around to discover the truth with us.  First, Democrats and liberals are celebrating the AMAZING SPEECH delivered by “Vegetable Joe” Biden last night, a speech in which, he takes full credit for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  Oh, Joe managed to stumble through 23 minutes of a speech- obviously on teleprompter- and managed to walk to and from the speech down the lengthy hall without falling flat on his space.  As Dick Morris told Newsmax TV, ‘Joe Biden is the rooster taking credit for the sunrise.’  Dick’s right.  Never have we seen something so pathetic, so lackluster, so impotent in our lives.  The enemies of our nation must be wondering how they were so lucky to get this feeble, drooling old fool into the White House.  This is not good for the United States. 
  72. 2021 Friday A: Apparently, the accusers of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo are facing harassment online.  Sounds like something the Goombah Governor would have his flunkies do.  We hope they go to jail, too.  Speaking of “Killer Cuomo,” Democrats in New York such as the “Baby Evita,” aka Alexandria Ocasio, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, and overweight Jerrold Nadler (along with 10 other House Dems)- along with Big Apple Mayor Bill Di Blasio- are all demanding the beleaguered Empire State governor step down, NOW.  Still, “Killer Cuomo” says, ‘I ain’t going nowhere, I have a job to do.’  Listen moron: the longer you fight this, the worse it’s going to be for you.  LEAVE NOW, especially now that yet another accuser has stepped forward. 
  73. 2021 Friday B: As illegal aliens swamp the southern border and as concerned Americans begin gearing up to head to the border to repel the invasion, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says, “Crisis, what crisis?”  The octogenarian speaker never met an illegal alien she didn’t love.  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says, “the Biden administration must address the crisis on the southern border.”  Wow.  You go, Chuck, you go!   In other crooked Democratic Party news, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez Jr., D-TX 15th congressional district, even as he urged the United States to divest from the People’s Republic of China maintained a Chi-Com bank account of between $100,000 to $250,000.  Typical Democrat, talking out of both sides of his face.  
  74. 2021 Friday C: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the city of Austin, Texas, for refusing to follow Governor Greg Abbot’s order to terminate ALL mask mandates within the Lone Star State.  Austin is like liberal pus-filled sore in an otherwise DEEP RED Texas.  Go get ‘em, AG Paxton!   Elsewhere, the state of Kentucky’s Senate passes a bill that would criminalize taunting of all law enforcement officers.  Excellent.   Next, New York prosecutor Cyrus Vance Jr., the man ‘investigating President Donald J. Trump,’ says he won’t run for another term. 
  75. 2021 Friday D: Following the disastrous interview with Oprah Winfrey, popularity polls show that Mr. and Mrs. Meghan Markle are dropping fast.  Listening to Meghan Markle snivel and whine about the family that took her in and made her one of them is not only disgusting but traitorous.  Their sickening actions should cancel both her and her husband, the Person formerly known as Prince Harry, to undergo CANCELATION for good, IF the Cancel Culture actually pursued losers.  Finally, Geraldo “Al Capone’s Vault” Rivera says he’s NOT going to seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in November 2022.
  76. 2021 Friday E: The City of Minneapolis settles for $27 million with the family of George Floyd.  Family attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump gets up there and continues blasting those who made it possible.  This guy never saw a pot of racial confrontation he did not want to stir.  The autopsy showed that Mr. Floyd was full of drugs and that his body showed no signs of fatal physical injuries as the prosecution alleges fired M. P. D. Officer Derek Chauvin and three other officers caused the low-level thug.  We still believe Keith Ellison- Minnesota’s AG- is going to blow this case and even with 3rd degree murder charges restored to the pantheon of charges upon which, the prosecution hopes to win a conviction.  No, AG Ellison is going to become a goat.     
  77. 2021 Friday F: Former U.S. Green Beret Army Captain Jeffrey MacDonald, age 77, is seeking release from prison on compassionate grounds.  MacDonald has been in prison for more than 40 years now having been convicted of killing his pregnant wife and two daughters on February 17, 1970.  He has sought release before and has always claimed innocence in the matter, stating that a band of violent hippies murdered his family.   No motive has ever been presented of which, we know, but the Army captain received three consecutive life sentences, nevertheless. 
  78. 2021 Friday G: Arizona five-term Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, D-2nd congressional district, announces that she won’t be seeking another term in Congress.   In other news, the Biden administration is holding talks with Israel, discussing Iran and other regional issues.  Speaking of ‘Joe Biden,’ Ric Grenell says the fact that Vice President Kamala Harris is holding talks with world leaders is extremely troubling.   In other Joe Biden news, he wants every American to be eligible for the vaccines President Donald J. Trump created to combat the Chi-Vi by May 01, 2021.  In other news of interest, President Trump’s COVID-19 coordinator (and backstabber) Dr. Deborah Birx, is leaving government service and going to work for a Texas air purifier company.  Good riddance.  
  79. 2021 Friday H: Host of the Summer Olympics, Japan refuses the offer of a Chi-Com offer of a Bat Flu vaccine.  So would we. WHO is stupid enough to take a vaccine from the country that set the pandemic in motion?  WTF?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com-run World Health Organization is investigating the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine following reports of coagulation problems and pulmonary embolisms reported in several European Union countries such as the Netherlands, Austria, Norway, Denmark, and Italy.  We are not advocating anyone take this crap, especially the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that uses fetal tissue harvested from abortions both in its manufacture and its testing.  The Catholic Church even warned Catholics worldwide to avoid this POS vaccine.[ix]
  80. 2021 Friday I: As we continue learning of all the PORK in the $1.9 trillion Chi-Vi relief bill, the more shocking it becomes what with inmates on death row and illegal aliens qualifying for ‘stimulus checks.’  Add to that more than $350 billion to bail out BLUE STATE GOVERNMENTS AND LOCALES and one can see the making of yet another Obama-Biden Era PORKULUS in which, the federal government always had on hand a big slush fund with which to fund their supporters in a perpetual money-go-round all the while the citizens of the country suffer.   Imagine, the mayor of Portland, Oregon, Teddy Wheeler, wants several million so he can rebuild his tattered and abandoned police force.  Still, the bill directs $268 billion to education even as schools in many parts of the country refuse to reopen.  Additional hundreds of millions of dollars will flow to Planned Parenthood, to Obamacare exchanges, and to every other left-wing liberal load of hooey Democrats love. 
  81. 2021 Friday J: CNN’s ratings continue to collapse sans President Donald J. Trump in the White House and after seeing porcine loser Brian Stelter sitting in his skivvies with his laptop’s camera lens focused on his crotch area while he does the news, NO wonder.  Did we see him sitting in his drawers either before or after ‘pulling a Toobin?’[x]  What is it with these sick left-wing losers?  Put your pants on you pudgy pig.
  82. 2021 Friday K: Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, and Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, say that Joe Biden and ONLY Joe Biden bears complete responsibility for the disaster befalling our southern border and Customs and Border Patrol officers fighting to stem the massive tide of illegals seeking to invade the country.    In other news, the Quadrilateral Nations- aka ‘Quad Nations (United States, Japan, India, and Australia)- are meeting to discuss countermeasures against the Chi-Coms who are becoming a REGIONAL adversary in the Indo-Pacific Region.
  83. 2021 Friday L: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 118,742,439 confirmed cases, +623,106, 2,632,364, confirmed deaths, +10,420, and 67,253,779 confirmed recoveries, +326,819.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,509,986 confirmed cases, up 41,225 from yesterday’s reporting, 535,758 confirmed deaths, UP 1,012, and 115,036,827 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 207,281 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  84. 2021 Friday M: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,614,568 confirmed cases, 55,138 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases (DOWN from yesterday’s number), 448 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 350,661 confirmed cases, 5,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Montana, aka the Big Sky or Treasure State: currently, they have 101,561 confirmed cases, 1,392 confirmed deaths, and 99,213 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 814,250 confirmed cases, 5,967 confirmed deaths, and 773,545 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Indonesia, the largest Muslim-majority nation on Earth: 1,410,134 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 38,229 confirmed deaths, and 1,231,254 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, how about their numbers: 90,002 confirmed cases (our sources in Hong Kong say multiply everything by 75,000-percent and add the numbers for a total of 71,358,428 confirmed cases, 3,724,401 confirmed deaths, and 65,835,291 confirmed recoveries- and remember- these are still low-end numbers.  Estimates, of course, because communist nations ALWAYS lie…
  85. 2021 Friday N: Bob Sellers on Newsmax reports consumer confidence is at its highest point since before the Xi Jinping Bat Flu swept across the world.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,778.64, UP 293.05 points (+0.90%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,319.86, DOWN 78.808 points (-0.59%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,943.34, UP 4.00 points (+0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,725.80 per troy oz., +6.00 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.01 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.38%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.50 per troy oz, +8.20 (+0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.16 per pound, +0.02 (+0.41%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,376.00 per troy oz, +20.50 (+0.87%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.56 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.08%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.73.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Argentine Peso, one greenback equals 90.78.  NOTE- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.801 per gallon, $3.536 in Hawaii, and $3.235 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe.
  86. 2021 Friday O: New York’s junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has joined the chorus demanding that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo step down, that he is no longer fit to do the job and must go.  Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer, senior New York senator and Senate majority leader also is saying, “ENOUGH!  It’s time to go!”  Of course, NO one gives a hoot about the 15,000 to 20,000 New Yorkers the old thug governor consigned to their deaths when he returned COVID-19-infected patients back into the nursing homes where they infected others.  Then, when they were on the verge of death, Cuomo had them returned to the hospitals so their deaths would fall atop the hospitals and not on the nursing homes.  Cuomo was in effect trying to cover up the deaths that he himself caused.  This guy needs to visit Old Sparky. 
  87. 2021 Friday P: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1641 with a $79 million jackpot on the line.  Remember- YOU must buy your tickets NO LATER than 7:45 P.M. PST.
  88. 2021 Friday Q: In a speech to the U.N. Human Rights Council, U.S. Charge d’ Affaires Mark Cassayre blasted the Chi-Coms for their horrid human rights abuses and genocide of the Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang Province, China.  He also lit them up on the crackdown on the free people of Hong Kong.  Of course, the Chi-Coms and the other Third World thugs on the ‘Council’ were outraged.  Who cares?  Speaking of communist thugs, Vladimir Putin had his number one critic, Alexei Navalny, removed from a prison near Moscow and taken to a black site somewhere in Russia.  His lawyer has no clue where the jack-booted Putin thugs took him.  We know the poor guy is serving a 2.5-year sentence for ‘parole violations,’ this after the Putin regime tried to murder the man with Novichok, a Soviet-era poison. 
  89. 2021 Friday R: Questions continue arising over the recent Joe Biden-authored airstrike on Syria as well as the previous one back in 2018 when President Donald J. Trump was in the White House.  President Trump wanted to pull the U.S. out of needless wars whereas ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden clearly is a deep part of the industrial-military-political complex putting our country at risk.  Syria is indeed a sovereign country, and we have no business attacking them, yet the warmongers behave as though they are the guiding lights of the Roman Empire, fighting perpetual wars, weakening the country by expending countless lives, wealth, and time when the United States should be continuing what President Trump wanted to do and that was to make America great again.  You DON’T see the Chi-Coms wasting blood and treasure to fight bogus wars, no, they are waiting for the day when their nation collides with ours and it’s not going to go well when they do.
  90. 2021 Friday S: The African nation of Nigeria is under assault again, once again by ‘bandits,’ meaning Boko Haram, Islamist thugs.  The so-called ‘armed bandits’ assaulted another town and its school in northwestern Nigeria kidnapping at least 30 students and several staff members carrying them off into the jungle.  The Nigerian government just spent loads of money to get 180 students kidnapped a week or so ago back from the jihadists.   These very same scumbags kidnapped 279 schoolgirls from their school last month.  Sounds like there should be a concerted effort by West African nations to eradicate this scum and to bury their dead bodies with pigs’ blood all over them.
  91. 2021 Friday T: Attacks against Asian Americans continue in heavily Democratic areas around the country, attacks decried by a mumbling, stumbling old Joe Biden last night in his PRIME-TIME ADDRESS.  We have a theory- we believe the Democrats are paying low-economic black Americans to go out and commit these attacks- we have seen film on various news channels and it’s NOT white Americans committing these attacks- so they can then scream and cry about the ‘heinous attacks on our poor Asian-American fellow citizens.’  Look, when you have a party that infiltrates Trump supporters and then engineers an ‘insurrection’ on the nation’s capital, these scumbags will stoop to any low and this would surprise NONE of us.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Prior to the Band tossing in the towel, they decided to do a farewell concert, one filmed by Martin Scorsese, on Thanksgiving Day 1976 at Bill Graham’s fabled Winterland Ballroom.  It was a celebration of the Band’s music for 5,000 of their closest friends with numerous guest appearances by a who’s who of amazing musicians at the time.  The album featured three discs of the greatest music ever performed as well as a subsequent film which swept across the country.  Everyone is on this record from Dr. John- the Night Tripper, aka Mac Rebennack, Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Wood, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, and loads of others.  One must see the music which means you have to get both the film and the three-disc box set to enjoy the entire celebration of the Band’s music.  There’s also the Staple Singers, Emmylou Harris, Neil Young, you name it, they’re here, so we hope you will seek it out, add it to your ever-growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY MARCH 12, 2022, BLOG POST #4,484

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are unclear as to when we will offer the music of Badfinger, seeing as how we should have promoted them during the lengthy presentation of the Beatles and the band’s various members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do as this band was among the greats.

[ii] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[iii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.  Hell, we might also do the music of the group’s sisters, too.

[iv] We shared the music of the famed Los Angeles, California, psychedelic rock band, Love, beginning on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  We hope you will check them out as they deserve to be heard.  The debut album occurred on the first day of the presentation.

[v] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[ix]. We believe the World Health Organization will do what their masters in Beijing direct them to do and that will be to promote the Chi-Com ‘VID vaccine over everyone else’s.  Like we said, we are avoiding the vaccine like facial herpes.

[x] Disgraced newsman Jeffrey Toobin was fired for being caught on a Zoom work call spanking the old wank.  Sick f**k.

  62. 2013 Sunday: The Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers to win their second NFL championship in Super Bowl XLVII after someone blew the Louisiana Superdome’s power in New Orleans power out for 45 minutes.  Prior to the power outage, the Ravens had the 49ers down 28-6 but once it came back on, the 49ers were reinvigorated and almost beat the Ravens; however, the Ravens managed to come back to life themselves and ended up beating the 49ers by a score of 34-31 to win Super Bowl XLVII.  Baltimore quarterback, Joe Flacco, is the MVP for the game.  This marked the first time the 49ers had ever LOST a super bowl (and thank God, they did!).
  63. 2014 Monday: The Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning wins a record fifth Associated Press MVP Award; no one has ever won the award more than three times.  Meanwhile, according to Brainy History, the abortion rate in the United States is reportedly at its lowest in three decades.  The rate for 2011 stands at 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing years whereas in 2008, it was 19.4 while back in 1981, it was at an all-time high of 29.3.
  64. 2015 Tuesday:  After a lapse of 55 years, novelist Harper Lee releases “Go Set a Watchman,” the sequel to her famous novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which set the character Scout as an adult rather than the child the character was in the first book, “Mockingbird.”  The publisher convinced the author to go the “Mockingbird” book first.
  65. 2016 Wednesday: Both Japan and South Korea put their militaries on alert and begin making strong statements towards North Korea who is testing and going to continue testing long-range ballistic missiles.  Japan promises to shoot down any such aerial vehicles traversing its airspace.  Meanwhile, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, both Republicans, suspend their races for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. 
  66. 2017 Friday: The U.S. Department of the Treasury announces new sanctions on the criminal regime in Iran following a recent ballistic missile test that goes against deals struck by the Obama regime and the ayatollahs.  Thirteen people and 12 entities tied to Tehran are on the list.  Elsewhere, federal Judge James Robart issues a temporary injunction against the Trump travel ban imposed on majority Muslim countries with deep ties to terrorism.
  67. 2018 Saturday: The New York Times reported an accusation from actress Uma Thurman that disgraced movie mogul and BIG Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein had forced himself on her sexually years ago in a London hotel room; Weinstein acknowledged making an “awkward pass” (which means he did his best to RAPE her) but strongly denied any physical assault. 
  68. 2019 Sunday: In the lowest scoring super bowl of all time, Super Bowl LIII, the New England Patriots defense stifled the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 13-3.  This was perhaps the most boring super bowl of all time.  Julian Edelman was the game’s MVP as he provided most of the offense that won the game.  Maroon 5, Big Boi and some other schlub were the half-time show.  Elsewhere, Pope Francis becomes the first Roman Catholic pontiff to visit the Arabian Peninsula when he visits Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
  69. 2020 Monday: Much to the shock of his radio listeners, Rush Limbaugh announced that his doctors had diagnosed him with advanced lung cancer.  He promises to soldier on, and we certainly hope that he can.  We are rooting for you, Big Guy, but please, give up the stogies.   Elsewhere, as cases of COVID-19 continue getting out of hand, the Cruise Lines International Association bans all cruise lines stops in mainland China.  Meanwhile, on the Greek island of Lesbos which is overrun with thousands of Muslim ‘migrants’ from the Middle East, riot police have to break out tear gas and batons to quell migrants rioting and burning their holding camps over poor conditions.  The answer is simple: GO HOME.
  70. 2020 Monday A: As the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump nears its conclusion in the U.S. Senate, House managers (prosecutors) and defense attorneys for the 45th president begin making their closing remarks.  West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges for censure rather than conviction but of course, his far-left Democratic Party colleagues don’t listen to him.  The trial has been a farce from start to finish, mostly boring but at other times laughable.  The Democrats genuinely believe they are ‘killing it’ when in fact, they are turning off millions of Americans. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday: U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen calls a meeting with the SEC and the Federal Reserve over the GameStop craze.  Apparently, some people can make big money and others cannot; what a shame.  Next, as the GOP implores Joe Biden to agree to a lower COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill, he waves them off- no way.   Next, the House GOP are holding a meeting to determine the futures of Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney who has become extremely toxic.  We expect Greene will lose all committee assignments and will suffer in-party censure whereas a party will be thrown for Cheney.  IF this occurs, my colleagues in California say the days of voting for Kevin McCarthy are fast approaching an end.   Speaking of California politics, reprobate Democrat Congressman Adam “POS” Schiff is badgering soon-to-be-former Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to make him the Golden State’s attorney general. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday A: The un-American New York Times is facing surprising blowback following their encouragement of Joe Biden to form a “1984-style” Truth Commission with which, liberals and BIG TECH can track, monitor, and disappear Americans’ online words and deeds.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court does not accede to the Biden administration’s request to toss hearings on Trump administration immigration policies into the garbage, merely postpones them.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, Sinophile U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announces the U.S. and Russia have extended the New Start Treaty for another five years.   Finally, Claudia Tenney, congresswoman from New York’s 22nd Congressional District declares victory with a 123-vote lead over sitting congressman Anthony Brindisi.
  73. 2021 Wednesday B: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she with the eyes drooping in two different directions, says ‘a 9/11-style TRUTH COMMISSION       is necessary to figure out how the Capitol Building was stormed by Antifa members posing as Trump supporters on January 6.  We doubt anything more will come from this because as numerous video clips continue surfacing showing Capitol Hill police officers waving the FALSE FLAG operators into the building, there can be but one conclusion: Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- as head of the Capitol Police Department- gave the word to allow her Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs easy entry in the hope they could use it against former President Donald J. Trump.  We look forward to the results of yet another bogus ‘investigation’ led by Democrats.  Elsewhere, in California, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer has thrown his hat into the ring to replace rapidly disappearing Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  The mayor’s first campaign ads are spectacular, and we hope he will be able to take the seat and save the state.    Finally, climate fraud John F. Kerry is blasted for flying in his PRIVATE JET to receive a ‘climate award.’  Hypocrite!
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Congresswoman Nancy Mace calls out the Baby Evita- Sandy Cortez- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- the biggest leftwing crybaby in Congress, over her claims that she was cowering in her office closet while the EVIL MAGA supporters were outside in the hallway.  Congresswoman Mace who is two doors down from Sandy Cortez says, “IT NEVER HAPPENED.”  Yet, the mainstream news media remains incurious.  Personally, we know AOC had little to fear because she was briefed like everyone else in the Democratic Party that the Antifa and BLM human garbage were going after Republicans.   Elsewhere, Cancel Culture continues trying to destroy Americans, the latest target being Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame.  All because he believes the plentiful evidence of election fraud in November 2020, everyone is trying to shut him up, even that putz Bob Sellers on Newsmax who would not permit him to speak the day before.  Sorry, Newsmax, you need to boot Sellers back to FNC.
  75. 2021 Wednesday D: Communist China warns U.S. Secretary of State Sinophile Anthony Blinken NOT to interfere when it comes to Hong Kong either.  Blinken and the U.S. have already been warned off about interfering in Taiwan so now the Biden administration has been told to butt out on the issue of Hong Kong, too.  Elections have consequences- hey, Joe: are we going to return to the Transpacific Partnership, too?   Speaking of the State Department, its spokesperson says a U.N. ambassador must be confirmed and soon IF the United States is going to hold the Chi-Coms accountable.   Meanwhile, we learn that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, stammering, stuttering, and always ‘circling back’ to answer reporters sent a homophobic tweet about Sen. Lindsey Graham, calling him, “Lady G.”  My, don’t you just love the ‘beautiful people’ that aren’t racists, bigots, homophobes, xenophobes, transphobes, haters, white supremacists, and the like?  Good one, Jen, good one.
  76. 2021 Wednesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 104,142,856 confirmed cases, +570,195, 2,260,283, confirmed deaths, +17,045, and 57,839,230 confirmed recoveries, +336,520.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,730,817 confirmed cases, up 206,599 from yesterday’s reporting, 453,059 confirmed deaths, UP 5,312, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 48,215 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,350,293 confirmed cases, 41,811 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 318,967 confirmed cases, 4,402 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Florida: currently, they have 1,744,619 confirmed cases, 27,467 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 667,216 confirmed cases, 4,928 confirmed deaths, and 589,288 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Brazil: 9,296,245 confirmed cases, 226,666 confirmed deaths, and 8,160,929 confirmed recoveries.    
  78. 2021 Wednesday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,723.60, UP 36.12 points (+0.12%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,610.54, DOWN 2.23 points (+0.016%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,830.17, UP 3.86 points (+0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,834.80 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $26.95 per troy ounce, +0.061 (+0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,112.60 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, -0.0035 (-0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,276.60 per troy oz, +48.90 (+2.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $55.95 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.47%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.20.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000027 Bitcoin.  
  79. 2021 Wednesday H: The U.S. Senate via ‘budget reconciliation process’ has passed Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.  With the cash flowing in from communist China, this bill will bankrupt the country for generations to come.   Speaking of BIG BUCKS, here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3531 with a $17 million pot up for grabs: 04, 15, 27, 28, 34, and Mega 16.  Out of 98,965 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $37,233.  The winning ticket was sold at 7-Eleven at Carnelian Bay, CA 96140.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #817 with $20 million on the line: 05, 37, 40, 64, 66, and Powerball 05.  Out of 50,955 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,997 apiece.
  80. 2021 Wednesday I: The 19th U.S. Transportation Department Secretary “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg assumed office on this date.  Known for filling in the potholes in the streets of South Bend, Indiana, where he served as mayor, President Joseph R. Biden Jr., chose him for one reason and one reason only (you figure it out).  Currently, he is still serving in this position.
  81. 2022 Thursday: Everyone knows the drill…stick around for the latest…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by English folk-rock band, Fairport Convention, “By Popular Request,” came out on January 18, 2012.  This album is unique in the band’s catalog, rather like Family’s “Old Songs, New Songs”[v] that came out back in the early 1970s.  Family- another British band, albeit a hard-rocking-psychedelic band of sorts- made changes in record labels and recorded their best tunes over again and released them as they wanted them to be originally.  In the case of Fairport Convention’s album for today, they have 13 of their classic tracks re-recorded for their fan base.  The tunes selected for this release were voted on by their fans at numerous concerts and boy, oh, boy, what a great album this is.  The band features the current lineup of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Thursday, February 03, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[ii] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of these foundational rockers at some point in the not so distant future.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[v] Back in the day while we were with Google Blogger- before the maggots started ghosting us to our readers- we presented the “Old Songs, New Songs,” album by Family on Saturday, October 12, 2013.  Although you cannot find the post, we never forget the good work we did for our readers.  Perhaps one day, we will be able to run through the more than 4,500 albums we have shared with our readers.   Note- Google Blogger was so devious, so deceptive, that they blocked our links to Amazon.com where our fans could go purchase them which truly sucked just as they cut off our advertising revenue.  We hope one day to settle the score with that c**ksucker Sundar Pichai and his Chi-Com-backed POS company.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

353. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2021

70. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot having continues coming to light. He must go. NOW!

  62. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate approves a $1.5 trillion tax bill the Democrats screech, and wail is going to the wealthiest Americans.  Look, the wealthiest Americans are the job creators, so STFU liberal, left-wing losers!   Meanwhile, in communist China, Beijing condemns and executes 10 accused drug smugglers and dealers yet the amount of fentanyl flowing into the U.S. from the Chi-Coms won’t end.  What is up with that?

  64. 2019 Thursday: Senile House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi overplays her hand yet again by making it official- she won’t walk the two articles of impeachment against President Donald J.

  67. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept. (2) U.S. Commerce Dept. (3) National Institute of Health (4) CISA (5) Dept. of Homeland Security (6) U.S. State Dept. (7) Pentagon- the (8) Office of POTUS (9) NASA (10) Natl. Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’

  69. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  70. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot having continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.

  72. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.

Currently, they have 614,429 confirmed cases, 8,031 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor DeWine.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 372,886 confirmed cases, 3,074 confirmed deaths, and 345,589 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Mao Zedong fever, Maryland and Virginia donate doses of the vaccine to Washington, D.C.
  74. 2020 Saturday: Folks, even though it’s Saturday, everyone knows EVIL never sleeps so stay tuned for whatever shenanigans the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party in the U.S. are up to today.  Everyone knows whatever it is, it’s going be GOOD!

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Saturday, December 19, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Sunday, December 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[ii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership, so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. 

[vii] See previous footnote.  

[viii] In 2019, enfeebled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues misleading the public that what President Bill Clinton was in trouble for was his ‘affair’ with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  Although that was questionable, he was in trouble for lying in the Paula Jones case as well as for suborning lying under oath in same which inevitable cost him big bucks as well as the right to practice law in his home state of Arkansas for a year.  Speaker Pelosi, STOP LYING to the American people, tell the truth or step down from office and go back home to crime-ridden San Francisco.

[ix] This guy is more of a murderous thug than even his father was.  Still President Donald J. Trump has attempted to bring him and his rat-shit country into modern times.  We shall see.

[x] In 2019 at this point, we are not sure as to whether she will give it, yet another goes or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

352. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2021

69. 2020 Friday A: After we learn that Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did NOT take the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding election fraud and corruption because he was AFRAID of mob violence if he did, he throws President Trump a bone by upholding the administration’s edict NOT to include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census as we shouldn’t. Illegals are NOT American citizens and have no right to anything in this country other than a quick deportation.

  53. 2005 Sunday: Bolivia elects the pro-Castro regime of Evo Morales.   Elsewhere, Democracy Now shares evidence that the Bush administration permitted the wiretapping of American citizens sans any warrants which leads Vermont Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy to declare, “No more secret courts, secret orders, or torture of jihadist suspects.’

  71. 2020 Friday C: New text messages coming to light reveal that James Comey- fired FBI director- and his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama’s spying on Donald Trump started far earlier than previously reported, going back to 2015.  Meanwhile, former national security adviser Lt.

  72. 2020 Friday D: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 75,179,482 confirmed cases, +654,493, 1,667,124, confirmed deaths, +9,418, and 42,512,618 confirmed recoveries (interestingly down from a week ago), +318,734.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,401,776 confirmed cases, up 255,944 from yesterday’s reporting, 313,797 confirmed deaths, UP 1,711, and 7,777,776 confirmed recoveries, UP 12,256.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Chi-Com flu, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence received vaccinations for the Yellow Fever 2020 today.  Former Beatle Paul McCartney says he will get vaccinated.  Meanwhile, the FDA is working to get the Moderna vaccine into use while a poll reports that 71-percent of Democrats and 41-percent of Republicans must get the Wuhan Virus vaccine if one wants to return to work.

  75. 2020 Friday G: We learn that the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is trying to emplace new rules on AR-15 pistols, firearms that come with braces that strap to the shooter’s forearms, could soon have requirements demanding they be registered, dismantled, turned in to the government, or destroyed.  It’s like we always say: GO BUY YOUR GUNS NOW.  Then, find secure holding places for them because when government comes a-knocking on one’s door demanding your guns, ‘oh, gee, some illegal alien stole them yesterday and I was just about to report them.’  F**k the government if “Pro-China Joe” Biden begins running it and that moron of morons, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke comes looking for them.  We are telling you; people are going to get themselves shot.
  76. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1617 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 07, 15, 25, 51, 60, and Mega 05.  Out of 110,011 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,064 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are once again set out to make some money via remastering the works of Richard and Linda Thompson.  The resulting effort was “The Best of Richard and Linda Thompson: The Island Record Years” which is a nice repackaging of earlier works all nicely remastered and polished for new generations of fans.  While some loves of Richard Thompson may choose to overlook these years, they were wonderful what with her softer elements combined with his harder rock efforts.  We love the album and believe that all diehard fans as well as loads of new ones will, too.  Please, seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Friday, December 18, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of the Classical composers as without them, we would live in a barbarous world where Islamist scum murder innocent people at will.  Music is what sets civilized people apart from the savages.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[v] One of the greatest saxophonists of his time, he performed with numerous bands but primarily the Rolling Stones.

[vi] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[viii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[ix] We are surprised that no one ever assassinated this worthless POS.  However, he died of gut cancer because instead of coming to the United States or Spain for treatment, he went to Cuba, a place Democrats say has ‘the best health care system in the world’ and which they want to replicate here in the United States with “Medicare for All,” which means “NOT Medicare at All” but a crap system.

307. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 03, 2021

60. 2020 Tuesday: A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Kyle Rittenhouse was not going to face charges. Apparently, this was incorrect. Kenosha, Wisconsin, is holding this brave young man on a $2 million bond and are charging him with 1st Degree Intentional Homicide and 1st Degree Reckless Homicide. These charges are bogus, and Rittenhouse should be freed today as had he not done what he did during the recent Kenosha riots, he would be dead.

  49. 2008 Monday: On the eve of Election Day 2008, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain wrapped up their two-year campaign for the White House.  Two years?  This crap must stop, campaigns should last no longer than ONE year.  Elsewhere, Ali Hamza al-Bahlul, a video maker for Osama bin Laden, was sentenced at Guantanamo Bay to life in prison for encouraging terrorist attacks. 
  50. 2009 Tuesday: German Chancellor Angela Merkel marked the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a speech to the U.S. Congress by exhorting the world to “tear down the walls of today” and reach a deal to combat the faux ‘science’ of global warming.  It is interesting to note that when liberals talk about ‘removing walls,’ they mean flooding their countries with illegal aliens and Muslim refugees.
  51. 2010 Wednesday: The U.S. Border Patrol discovers a sophisticated drug-smuggling tunnel between Tijuana, Mexico, and Otay Mesa (Chula Vista), California.  Meanwhile, in Montreal, Quebec, the guitarist/vocalist who took Randy Bachman’s place in Bachman-Turner Overdrive[vi] in 1978—Jim Clench—lost his battle with lung cancer on this date; he was just 61.

  55. 2015 Tuesday: Republican Matt Bevin, a favorite of the Tea Party, wins the gubernatorial race in the commonwealth of Kentucky.  Meanwhile, an environmentalist report comes out that says the Chi-Coms burn 17-percent more coal than they previously claimed.  Shame on them.  Yet, the United States is the nation always being attacked by the liberal snowflakes for its climate emissions.   Elsewhere in Syria, we learn that rebels are caging civilians for use as human shields.  Bashar al-Assad could give a hoot.
  56. 2016 Thursday: In communist Nicaragua, the Sandinista government’s ‘elections’ are marked by apathy and distrust which is the problem in every socialist state.  Daniel Ortega and his fellow commies must be  booted out of the country.
  57. 2017 Friday: Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl[viii], who walked away from his post in Afghanistan to join the Taliban and triggered a search that left some of his comrades severely wounded, was spared a prison sentence by a military judge in North Carolina.   President Donald J. Trump blasted the decision as a “complete and total disgrace.”
  58. 2018 Saturday: The Democrats sweep to victory in the mid-term elections winning the House of Representatives by gobbling up numerous California seats.  They claim people love their policies but many Republicans, believing the bull crap about President Donald J. Trump, opted to retire rather than to become part of the minority should he be removed from office, and they follow him in defeat.  This election is where human garbage such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow ‘squad members’ Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley won in races in New York, Minnesota, Michigan, and Massachusetts, respectively.  This could have been avoided had the GOP not been lulled into believing that Trump was some sort of ‘Russian agent.’  Regarding President Donald J. Trump, roughly 54-percent disproved of his job in office while 44-percent supported him.
  59. 2019 Sunday:  In the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump, four White House officials refused to testify before House Democrats.   Elsewhere, in the race for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination, “Lyin’ Liz” Warren, aka Pocahontas, Democratic senator from Massachusetts, releases her “Medicare for All” plan to public derision.  A year later, Democrats would be kicking Obamacare aside to go for this bogus plan which should tell everyone what they think of the ACA- it’s crap.  Meanwhile, Turkish-backed forces in northern Syria find themselves accused of ‘war crimes.’  Go figure.   Finally, authorities in Southern California lifted all evacuation orders as firefighters made progress on a large blaze that sent thousands fleeing homes and farms northwest of Los Angeles.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Kyle Rittenhouse was not going to face charges.  Apparently, this was incorrect.  Kenosha, Wisconsin, is holding this brave young man on a $2 million bond and are charging him with 1st Degree Intentional Homicide and 1st Degree Reckless Homicide.  These charges are bogus, and Rittenhouse should be freed today as had he not done what he did during the recent Kenosha riots, he would be dead.  Speaking of violence, more than a dozen states are deploying their National Guard troops due to the increasing likelihood of mob violence following the elections no matter who wins. 
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Democrats are already trying to steal the elections today.  The POS Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro says, “If all votes are counted, Joe Biden will win!”  Democrats always say, “all votes,” and never “all valid votes.”  Since 2000, Democrats have worked at stealing every election and have no intention of stopping that practice now.  Philadelphia District Attorney, the corrupt Larry Krasner threatens dire consequences to anyone caught trying to steal or interfere in the elections which is why the scumbag banished all GOP poll watchers from city polling places.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: We learn today that pro-Biden anti-Trump federal employees and contractors intend to cause as much disruption as possible throughout the government should President Donald J. Trump win another term.  Caught on social media, these young morons are discussing ways in which, they can further cause problems for the current administration.  Time for some serious law enforcement repercussions.  Time to start whacking and stacking, folks.  (Just kidding).
  63. 2020 Tuesday C: We learned that during the Chi-Vi pandemic, states with GOP leadership tend to have lower unemployment than states run by Democrats.  Most everyone understands this.  Democrats are CORRUPT and we must defeat them in every election moving forward.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order that will establish a “1776 Commission” so that proper history and government instruction can return to the educational system and that students can grow a sense of patriotism as they always should have.  Time to eradicate the communists and socialists in our schools.    
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: Deutsche Bank seeks to sever ties with President Donald J. Trump and with the Trump organization.  Meanwhile, Dr. Deborah Birx follows in the footsteps of colleague, Dr. Tony Fauci and goes against the president and demands an all-out COVID-19 Chi-Vi response.  Meanwhile House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi condemns newest U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett as ‘illegitimate.’  Mumbles, YOU are illegitimate so STFU!
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 47,328,401 confirmed cases, UP by 470,896 cases, 1,212,070 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,796 deaths, and 31,523,055 confirmed recoveries, UP by 294,605 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 9,464,351 confirmed cases, UP by 89,574 new cases, 236,011 confirmed deaths, UP by 960 new deaths, and 5,624,810 confirmed recoveries, UP by 46,131 new recoveries.
  66. 2020 Tuesday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 945,314 confirmed cases, 17,745 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 15,318 confirmed cases, 219 confirmed deaths, and 11,685 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 110,011 confirmed cases, 2,498 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, New York: 513,689 confirmed number of cases, 33,543  confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of confirmed number of recoveries- that’s Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 316,528 confirmed cases, 2,592 confirmed deaths, and 304,069 confirmed recoveries. 
  67. 2020 Tuesday G: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,480.03, UP 554.83 points (+2.06%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,160.57, UP 202.96 points (+1.85%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,369.16, UP 58.92 points (+1.78%).  The price of GOLD is $1,886.80 per troy oz., -23.60 (-1.24%) while the price of SILVER is $23.58 per troy ounce, -0.754 (-3.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $855.70 per troy oz, -19.30 (-2.21%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.0335 (-1.08%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.50 per troy oz., -0.02 (-0.50%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.08 per barrel, +0.42 (+1.12%).  Today, COCOA is $2,308.00 per metric ton, +0.44 (+1.94).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.72 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.86 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  68. 2020 Tuesday H: BLM protesters are in the process of surrounding the White House as we update today’s events.  Things are going in the direction of the Republicans right now so it’s clear that riots will ensue.  Law enforcement: when you see one arm upraised to throw a Molotov cocktail, that’s when you shoot.  When you see arsonists, looters, and people being beaten senseless in the streets, that again is when you shoot, use police dogs, fire hoses, and truncheons.  Do your job.  Maintain law and order and prevent destruction of property, violence, and disorder.
  69. 2020 Tuesday I:  Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1604 with a jackpot of $129 million: 07, 31, 44, 45, 55, and Mega 19.  The highest winners were 41 people who won $498 apiece.  Congratulations.
  70. 2020 Tuesday J: Famed college football coach Tommy Tuberville beats the hell out of ultra-leftist Senator Doug Jones, D-AL, and will enter the U.S. Senate on January 03, 2021.
  71. 2021 Wednesday: ONE year ago today, this is where we were at: today is Election Day so stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic flunkies are up to today- you know it’s going to be good…we will return tomorrow with news as right now, NO one truly knows what the outcome is going to be.  God bless and good night.

Elsewhere, Boko Haram continues causing problems in the African nation of Chad, particularly in the nation’s capital city of N’Djamena. A terrorist dressed in a burqa detonates a bomb that delivers at least 14 people kicking and screaming to hang with Allah far sooner than any of them planned while leaving loads more wishing they have gone, too. What the hell is wrong with these savages?
